In memory of  Dominic Hornsby

The stakes are high locally and nationally, and the only way to have it your way is to cast your vote.
"If you don't vote, you don't count." is as real as it gets. Voting is what keeps a neighborhood relevant.
 Historically, New Orleans East has been known to be a significant voting force. 


Voting is one of our most sacred rights as Americans. The Secretary of State's Office encourages Louisianan's to:
  • vote because it is your right;
  • vote to ensure your voice is heard;
  • vote to make a better state for yourself and your family; and
  • voting is one of the most powerful rights that a citizen has, and voter participation is crucial for an effective, truly representative government.

With a mission of “encouraging citizens of Louisiana to protect and enrich their quality of life by exercising their rights and responsibilities as informed voters,” the Voter Outreach Division has four basic functions:

  • to coordinate elections for schools and private organizations as a means to involve students and the community to think about voting and how it affects their lives. This affords the secretary of state and/or his staff a chance to speak with students and community members about the importance of voting. It also provides an opportunity to build partnerships between the office of the Secretary of State and communities throughout the state;
  • to make presentations to schools and communities about the importance of voting. This function is often carried out in tandem with private elections;
  • to conduct and facilitate voter registration drives. The staff of the Voter Outreach Division travels across the state to participate in voter registration initiatives; and
  • to support registrar of voters and clerks of court in their efforts to recruit and inform voters by providing brochures and assisting with the voter registration process.

If you are interested in partnering with the Voter Outreach Division to participate in any of these events, please view our list of programs.

 New Orleans East VOTES!

Words cannot express just how very honored I am to the people of the community to have been chosen to preside over Division "D" of Civil District Court. I am not only honored, but humbled by the tremendous amount of support and votes of confidence in my candidacy. To every single individual who not only voted for me, but also to those who prayed with me and for me, those who contributed from waving signs, spreading the word to family and friends or who just expressed words of encouragement, I say THANK YOU!

I look forward to working with the entire legal community in running an efficient and current docket.

I am committed to making all of you proud of my service and contributions to the judiciary. Again, thank you for your prayers and support!

In Louisiana you do not need a reason to vote early! All registers voters may vote early, just like they are voting on Election Day. Voters who want to vote early for any election may do so in person at their parish registrar of voters office or at designated locations in the parish from 14 days to seven days prior to any scheduled election. 

For a complete list of the locations of parish registrar of voters offices and designated early voting locations, please refer to early voting locations

The registrars of voters will open their offices from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. for each day of early voting. When you go to cast your vote early, you will be asked to identify yourself with either a photo ID or signature on a voter affidavit. You may use a driver's license, a Louisiana special ID or some other generally recognized picture ID that has your name and signature. If you do not have the proper ID you may cast a Provisional Ballot.  Provisional voting provides a fail safe procedure for voting in federal elections when any person appears to vote and is not listed as an eligible voter. You must certify in writing on the ballot that you are a registered voter in the parish and are eligible to vote in the election for federal office before voting. See Louisiana R.S. 18:1303 for more information about voting early.
